At this point in time jsandi can only continue to (1) insist he's LE, and (2) claim that "I have no beef... I simply posted an article for discussion and the peanut gallery freaked out..."

Although many good citizens in your jurisdiction may own and carry guns, keeping it real still fall on those who carry badges.
In a gunfight, even if you do everything right, you can still get killed.
